In an event scheduled for January 17, 2024, the 11th edition of the forum “Boosting the Absorption of European Funds by the Republic of Moldova – EU Candidate Country” will take place at the Chamber of Deputies, Parliament of Romania. The hosts of this event are the deputies Sorin Năcuţă and Daniel Gheorghe, as reported by Agerpres.
The purpose of this event, organized by the Chamber of Deputies in partnership with IDEP, is to identify the most suitable ways to support the authorities of the Republic of Moldova in their European Integration efforts by establishing interinstitutional partnerships. These partnerships aim to boost the absorption rate of European funds (e.g., the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance), adopting best practices from counterparts in Romania.
